Itinerary

Full Day:Thanh Toàn rural immersion

Depart from city center around 8:00. After half an hour warm up cycling (3km), you leave the city behind to follow countryside roads that wind along canals, ducks, and rice field.

Thanks to guide’s storytelling, you appreciate the deep-rooted wet rice culture and its central role in Vietnamese life. Admire charming village temples, colorful mosaic patterns. By chance, you may absorb with ancestral ritual practices at a seasonal celebration.

Call by a farmer house and lend a helping hand with farming jobs. Activities are seasonal, in real life setting and very entertaining.  Enjoy a farmer tea-break with local healthy snack. Continue your immersion with fishing experience on a laid-back pushing boat ride along Như Ý river. Occasionally the fishermen will challenge you with sampan racing or tending the duck flock. Grab some trick-of-the-trade to catch some fishes for your lunch or eventually fun trade at village market. 

“He that would have the fruit must climb the tree” is the principle for your homely lunch with local family. Learn from the host’s rice-theme recipe and share your skills to make the experience meaningful for all parts.

After lunch, hang on with locals around the restful Thanh Toàn ancient tile-roofed bridge. Situated adjacent the village market and mighty rice fields, this beautiful architecture was built by the virtuous Madame Trần Thị Đạo since 18th century. By mid-afternoon, enjoy interactive experience with local artisans to make a palm conical hat or wrap and taste sticky rice cakes. Return to city on bamboo shaded green roads.

So nice to experience a bit of normal life in Vietnam. I love the market and just riding through the village. Because our children are tired we didn’t do the whole tour. Thanks for adjusting the tour to our family needs. Kids love the pancakes!

The whole experience was perfect thanks to our guide. She make us so comfortable with her attitude and as the connection between local and us, we have learnt a lot from Hue culture. I would just do more emphasize on the importance of rice to Vietnamese culture and their people. But it was a perfect way to meet people and Vietnamese culture.
